  • For WW1 Australian Light Horse Regiments Click on Brigades in the Navigation Bar above

I found it necessary to create a Sub-units category for the various Light Horse, Horse, Mounted Infantry and Lancer units that  have been around.

More so than other units they tend to change names or amalgamate and then split or reform.

Keeping track of them is not easy.

Trying to link them to a particular WW1 Division is next to impossible

here they are, listed separately.

Pick a link from the list, Click and enjoy . . .
